Keeping Still

I am reading about the I-Ching. The I Ching (pronounced ‘E Ching’) is a form of Divination, dating back to Confucius, over 5000 years ago. One of the things discussed in the book I am reading is the inheret goodness of everyone’s personality. Through meditation, one is able to tune into that innate part of themselves and minimize negative thoughts and emotions which sometimes impede peace of mind. This idea corresponds to the I-Ching hexagram #52 (Keeping Still). The message behind this hexagram is: to be truly still is to be solidly grounded in the moment. The calmer you are, the greater clarity and self-reliance you will receive to draw on.
